I live in Richmond, Va. where I own and manage VCU student housing.
Catherine Nottingham purchased this house in 2006
I was born and raised right outside of Cape Charles. Growing up we spent every summer at out Smith Beach cottage. This Cape
Charles home has replaced my childhood beach and boating getaway.
This home that I restored myself combines the best of old house with modern amenities.
The overall vacation was wonderful! We had a great low key vacation with our kids. It's like stepping back in time in this quaint beachside community. The "cottage" had plenty of space for everyone with comfortable beds and a nice big kitchen. We also thoroughly enjoyed the porches. However, I emailed the owner to ask what time we could check in and she emailed back that we could get in after 2pm but before 3pm. We were early at 2pm and were going to wait outside a bit. The owner spotted us and said that they were running behind on cleaning and the maid would be there later to clean up what she, herself didn't like doing. Then, contrary to my earlier inquiry said that check-in was at 4pm but she would go ahead and let us in...just don't unpack anything in the kitchen or the downstairs bath. She said that the maid didn't speak English so just point if there was anything additional we wanted cleaned; I found this rude. Also, when the maid arrived, she did indeed have a strong accent but I had no problem speaking with her. After being "cleaned" , my family and I settled in. The cottage was decent but there was absolutley no attention to detail. There were massive dust bunnies under the furniture and the twin bed in the kids room was in fact a mattress shoved under the other bed. There were old used bars of soap in the showers along with several bottles of shampoo and conditioner. The fridge had all sorts of old half used bottles and jars of food in it. The cabinets were full of nonperishable items; including spices from 2011. I have seen coffee filters and salt and pepper left for renters before but the amount of food items was ridiculous. The jacuzzi tub was stained and filthy. I would never dream of sitting in it. It was nice to have three showers but they all could have used a good cleaning. The cottage has so much potantial and if a little elbow grease and attention to detail were implemented it could be quite lovely.
The cottage was cute and clean. The mattress in the brown bedroom was noisy and quite hard. The back bedroom (kids bedroom) did not have a dresser and the closet was locked so it could not be used. The stairs leading down from the that bedroom were very steep and would not recommend for children. The light was not working making it even more treacherous. Perhaps a gate at the top would be useful to prevent accidental falls. The kitchen is big and very nice. Only complaint was several bulbs were out. The door to side porch is not very secure and drafty. One of the windows in the kitchen did not lock. The feeling of safety was a concern especially when we left the cottage we locked valuables in the car. The side porch light was also out but we found a bulb and replaced it. The cushions on the side chairs were very dirty so you could not sit in them. Some of the towels had huge holes in them and there were only 2 wash cloths so we had to go buy some. While personal items left for renters is nice I don't believe anyone would use someone else's used bar of soap or toothpaste. I suggest just throw them out. The tub was very stained giving the appearance that it was dirty. We enjoyed ourselves and truly loved the cottage it just needs some TLC. The walk to the beach is pleasant and everyone was very friendly. The owner of this unit is very friendly and helpful.
Quaint cottage close to everything. The shops were on the next block over and the beach was a few blocks away. The house was perfect for us. Comfy, clean and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We even stayed an extra day. We brought jet ski's with us and used the free public ramp at the harbor which is only minutes away. Like the other reviewer, I almost didnt want to leave a review. We will be back to this little gem. Its a three bedroom. The 3rd bedroom is accessible through the 2nd bedroom or via back stairs. Kids would love it.
Everything was as stated. With the exception of the tranquility one gets from this small wonderful town. The house is adorable from the outside in. To walk up your surprised by the extensive use of modern appliances and the valued use of antiques. Very pleasant stay. Owner very easy to work with. Highly recommend
We were delightfully surprised when we walked in. Like the TARDIS it seems to be larger inside than out. The kitchen is particularly impressive. Also the covered deck in the back of the house was delightful. The house was clean and comfortable and the owner was very professional and polite.
It is furnished beautifully, nice and clean and right near both the beach and town. Walking distance to everything. The owner is highly responsive. We have stayed here multiple times and always choose this house first if it is available!! I almost do let want to write his because we don't want others to find this gem!!!
